diminish around 6 AM Saturday.
* The heaviest snowfall rates will occur between 6 PM Friday and

accumulation will occur between 6 AM and noon Friday.
* Total snow accumulations of 2 to 5 inches and ice
accumulations of 2/10 of an inch are expected.
* Winds gusting as high as 35 to 40 mph will cause patchy blowing

during the morning commute on Friday.
A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow...sleet or
